Hypnosis for Children

Carol Denicker, Board Certified Consulting Hypnotist, Master Instructor
With every passing year, I see increasing numbers of parents seeking help for their children’s issues through the use of hypnosis. Perhaps, because I’m  a mom and a grandma, I find it particularly gratifying to be able to help children (as well as their worried parents) through simple, natural hypnotic techniques.
Children respond very well to hypnosis because they are relatively free of the conditioning, skepticism and resistance that adults may have. Children are more “suggestible” and they have vivid imaginations.

Since imagination is an important attribute that is required to be hypnotized, it’s easier to access a child’s subconscious mind to bring about rapid change. If a child is motivated for change we often see amazing results.

If you’re wondering what issues could be improved for children with the use of hypnosis and positive self-suggestion, here are a list of issues that respond well to hypnotic techniques:

Behavioral Problems – Behavior problems at home or school
Self-confidence, self-esteem, goal setting
Fear – Fear of dogs, cats, insects, snakes, etc.), being left alone, darkness, monsters, doctors, dentists, needles, storms, test anxiety, new foods, being sick, sports injuries, failure, and more
Unwanted Habits – Nail biting, thumb sucking, hair twirling and poor posture, stuttering or stammering, nose picking, and more
Eating Habits – Food choices, too much sugar, manners, weight loss & weight control
Performance Issues – School, study skills, learning and memory, completing homework, exams, sports, competitions
Sleep – Reluctance to go to bed, too tired to get up, nightmares, etc.
Transitional Adjustments – Divorce, new home, new school, shyness, etc.
The hypnotism services I render to the public are defined as the use of hypnosis to inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis. I do not represent my services as any form of medical, behavioral or mental health care, and despite research to the contrary, by law I may make no health benefit claims for my services. 
 
North Shore Hypnosis utilizes hypnotism to help clients where I coach or guide to motivate individuals to achieve their goals. Hypnotism for medical or psychological problems requires a written referral from a licensed practitioner of those healing arts.” – Carol Denicker, BCH, CMI
